VisiLean SoilBuild Case Study
Categories: Residential

Background

Soil-Build (Pte.) Ltd. is a renowned Singapore-based contractor firm. They undertake futuristic projects that are backed by environmental benefits and have sleek building structures. Verticus, a high-end residential project, is one of their reputable projects where VisiLean was deployed. It is a freehold condo project situated on the fringe of the city. This project was destined to offer supreme connectivity to future residents for all their basic amenities.

 

Challenges

  • The Master schedule failed to track all the on-site updates effectively – the lack of planning input always meant looking back at the progress. No sooner was the Master schedule imported into Visilean than subcontractors, fabricators and suppliers could visualise their work and prioritise it. Providing planning input to the consolidated programme on the same platform allowed all stakeholders to be on the same page at all times.
  • A central platform to track the weekly updates of the contractors, subcontractors and fabricators was missing. VisiLean as a central platform helped the project managers and sub-contractors to review, update and monitor the status of the tasks in real-time to learn from roadblocks and variances.
  • WhatsApp/SMS was a central channel for onsite and offsite communication. This led to a loss of information in between and created traceability and responsibility issues for management.
     

Solution 

  • The Master schedule imported into Visilean led the subcontractors, fabricators and suppliers to visualise their work and prioritise it. Providing planning input to the consolidated programme on the same platform allowed all stakeholders to be on the same page at all times. 
  • VisiLean as a central platform helped the project managers and sub-contractors to review, update and monitor the status of the tasks in real-time to learn from roadblocks and variances. 
  • With VisiLean, each task was specifically assigned to the subcontractors and fabricators who reported real-time updates on it. This allowed for clear ownership as well as traceability of all actions revolving around the job done.

Achievement 

  • In a timeframe of six months, the Percent Planned Complete (PPC) jumped to 86%. It was followed by regular reviews among the main contractors, fabricators, suppliers, and sub-contractors in a collaborative setting which improved their production and task delivery.
  • BIM helped in accurate project planning and monitoring through Live 4D sequencing and scheduling. This was used for comparing the planned vs actual progress as well in a 4D BIM environment for performance improvement through continuous review of variance & issues.
